{Ezekiel 26:3} Therefore x3651 thus x3541 saith 559 z8804 the Lord 136 GOD; 3069 Behold, x2009 I [am] against x5921 thee, O Tyrus, 6865 and will cause many 7227 nations 1471 to come up 5927 z8689 against x5921 thee, as the sea 3220 causeth his waves 1530 to come up. 5927 z8687
"Therefore¹ thus¹ saithª° the Lordª GOD;ª Behold,¹ I [am] against¹ thee, O Tyrus,ª and will cause manyª nationsª to come upª° against¹ thee, as the seaª causeth his wavesª to come up.ª° ... And her daughtersª which¹ [are] in the fieldª shall be slainª° by the sword;ª and they shall knowª° that¹ I¹ [am] the LORD.ª" {Ezk 26:3-6} contain a summary prediction of what befell both the continental and insular Tyre, during a long succession of ages. The former was totally destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, after a siege of thirteen years, bc 573; and the latter, which arose out of its ruins, after seventy years recovered its ancient wealth and splendour, as foretold by Isaiah ("And it shall come to pass¹ in that¹ day,ª that Tyreª shall be forgottenª° seventyª years,ª according to the daysª of oneª king:ª after the endª¹ of seventyª yearsª shall Tyreª singª as an harlot.ª° ... And it shall come to pass¹ after the endª¹ of seventyª years,ª that the LORDª will visitª°¹ Tyre,ª and she shall turnª° to her hire,ª and shall commit fornicationª° with¹ all¹ the kingdomsª of the worldª upon¹ the faceª of the earth.ª" {Isa 23:15-17}). After it was taken and burnt by Alexander, bc 332, it speedily recovered its strength and dignity, and nineteen years afterwards withstood both the fleets and armies of Antigonus. Agreeably to the prophetic declarations ("And the daughterª of Tyreª [shall be there] with a gift;ª [even] the richª among the peopleª shall intreatª° thy favour.ª" {Psa 45:12} + "The kingsª of Tarshishª and of the islesª shall bringª° presents:ª the kingsª of Shebaª and Sebaª shall offerª° gifts.ª" {Psa 72:10} + "And her merchandiseª and her hireª shall be¹ holinessª to the LORD:ª it shall not¹ be treasuredª° nor¹ laid up;ª° for¹ her merchandiseª shall be¹ for them that dwellª° beforeª the LORD,ª to eatª° sufficiently,ª and for durableª clothing.ª" {Isa 23:18} + "The burdenª of the wordª of the LORDª in the landª of Hadrach,ª and Damascusª [shall be] the restª thereof: when¹ the eyesª of man,ª as of all¹ the tribesª of Israel,ª [shall be] toward the LORD.ª ... And I will take awayª° his bloodª out of his mouth,ª¹ and his abominationsª from between¹¹ his teeth:ª but he that remaineth,ª° even¹ he,¹ [shall be] for our God,ª and he shall be¹ as a governorª in Judah,ª and Ekronª as a Jebusite.ª" {Zch 9:1-7}), it was early converted to Christianity; and after being successively taken by the Saracens, Christians, Mamalukes, and Turks, in whose hands it still remains, it became "a place for the spreading of nets."
I am:
"Therefore¹ thus¹ saithª° the Lordª GOD;ª Behold,¹ I, even¹ I,¹ [am] against¹ thee, and will executeª° judgmentsª in the midstª of thee in the sightª of the nations.ª" {Ezk 5:8} + "And sayª° to the landª of Israel,ª Thus¹ saithª° the LORD;ª Behold,¹ I [am] against¹ thee, and will draw forthª° my swordª out of his sheath,ª¹ and will cut offª° from¹ thee the righteousª and the wicked.ª" {Ezk 21:3} + "And say,ª° Thus¹ saithª° the Lordª GOD;ª Behold,¹ I [am] against¹ thee, O Zidon;ª and I will be glorifiedª° in the midstª of thee: and they shall knowª° that¹ I¹ [am] the LORD,ª when I shall have executedª° judgmentsª in her, and shall be sanctifiedª° in her." {Ezk 28:22} + "And say,ª° Thus¹ saithª° the Lordª GOD;ª Behold,¹ I [am] against¹ thee, O Gog,ª the chiefª princeª of Meshechª and Tubal:ª" {Ezk 38:3} + "Behold,¹ I [am] against¹ thee, O inhabitantª° of the valley,ª [and] rockª of the plain,ª saithª° the LORD;ª which say,ª° Who¹ shall come downª° against¹ us? or who¹ shall enterª° into our habitations?ª" {Jer 21:13} + "Behold,¹ I [am] against¹ thee, [O thou] most proud,ª saithª° the Lordª GODª of hosts:ª for¹ thy dayª is come,ª° the timeª [that] I will visitª° thee." {Jer 50:31} + "The lionª did tear in piecesª° enoughª for his whelps,ª and strangledª° for his lionesses,ª and filledª° his holesª with prey,ª and his densª with ravin.ª" {Nah 2:12}
"Now¹ also manyª nationsª are gatheredª° against¹ thee, that say,ª° Let her be defiled,ª° and let our eyeª lookª° upon Zion.ª" {Mic 4:11} + "For I will gatherª°¹ all¹ nationsª against¹ Jerusalemª to battle;ª and the cityª shall be taken,ª° and the housesª rifled,ª° and the womenª ravished;ª°²° and halfª of the cityª shall go forthª° into captivity,ª and the residueª of the peopleª shall not¹ be cut offª° from¹ the city.ª" {Zch 14:2}
as the sea:
"Thy rowersª° have broughtª° thee into greatª waters:ª the eastª windª hath brokenª° thee in the midstª of the seas.ª" {Ezk 27:26} + "And in their wailingª they shall take upª° a lamentationª for¹ thee, and lamentª° over¹ thee, [saying], What¹ [city is] like Tyrus,ª like the destroyedª in the midstª of the sea?ª ... In the timeª [when] thou shalt be brokenª° by the seasª¹ in the depthsª of the watersª thy merchandiseª and all¹ thy companyª in the midstª of thee shall fall.ª°" {Ezk 27:32-34} + "The floodsª have lifted up,ª° O LORD,ª the floodsª have lifted upª° their voice;ª the floodsª lift upª° their waves.ª ... The LORDª on highª [is] mightierª than the noiseª¹ of manyª waters,ª [yea, than] the mightyª wavesª of the sea.ª" {Psa 93:3-4} + "For he commandeth,ª° and raisethª° the stormyª wind,ª which lifteth upª° the wavesª thereof." {Psa 107:25} + "And in that¹ dayª they shall roarª° against¹ them like the roaringª of the sea:ª and if [one] lookª° unto the land,ª behold¹ darknessª [and] sorrow,ª and the lightª is darkenedª° in the heavensª thereof." {Isa 5:30} + "They shall lay holdª° on bowª and spear;ª they¹ [are] cruel,ª and have no¹ mercy;ª° their voiceª roarethª° like the sea;ª and they rideª° upon¹ horses,ª set in arrayª° as menª for warª against¹ thee, O daughterª of Zion.ª" {Jer 6:23} + "The seaª is come upª° upon¹ Babylon:ª she is coveredª° with the multitudeª of the wavesª thereof." {Jer 51:42} + "Andª there shall beª° signsª inª the sun,ª andª in the moon,ª andª in the stars;ª andª uponª the¹ earthª distressª of nations,ª withª perplexity;ª the seaª andª the wavesª roaring;ª°" {Lke 21:25}
